They have some folks on the JK forum with other 100k miles and no problem. If you can remember this is not the first vehicle Chrysler has put this motor in... caravan. The 3.3 this motor is related to is very reliable. I have read some people received a knock at just over 100k on the caravans 3.8, but not too many. Dare I say it will hold up just as well as the amc 4.0 maybe better? My 2 cents.


08 Flame Red Rubi, first Jeep and loving every minute!

So yea, he lied. The irony is I caught every lie he mentioned, and pointed out facts such as Toyotas right now like to accelerated by themselves

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

I drive way too much, I'm currently driving over 250 miles a week to get to/from work, and another 200-250 at night or on weekends to go out to eat, run errands, etc. I've had the Jeep for 2 weeks and already put 1100 miles on it!

It wasn't totally broken yet, but it was heading that way.

I also replaced my stock/factory tires at that service. 5 tire rotations get you a long way, if you rotate them religiously every 6000 miles or so Finally upgraded from the 225/75r16s to something that fills the wells a little better.

So far, so good. I've been getting it serviced every 3-5k or so, with tire rotations every other visit, generally. I still get around 20mpg highway on my morning commute. Other than the stabilizer and water pump nothing's gone horribly wrong, mechanically.
You got pictures of the new tires?

Fox...I guess you wakeboard? Go to Austin much?

Anyway, sorry... I only have 3600 miles on the Jeep, got it mid February. I already did an oil change at 3k. Obviously no problems yet. Runs great and Il will continue oil changes every 3-4k miles to keep it going long term.

I took my JK into the dealer for a 3rd time for a oil leak. They have already replaced the intake gasket, a valve cover gasket, the oil sender and oil sender gasket, and now they are doing a UV dye test because they think it's the headgasket and they are getting approval from corporate to do the repair O.o

21,000 miles and 3 attempts to fix it. My state lemon law kicks in on the 4th attempt.

+1 I did it with Lemon Law - Pennsylvania Lemon Law, New Jersey Lemon Law, Massachusetts Lemon Law, Delaware Lemon Law, Ohio Lemon Law - awesome group of people. Very nice! Working on my leaky soft top that failed to fix after 4 times. I hope to get some money back for having to replace the header bow $150 and wasting gas going to the dealer 20 freaking times!

They are still using that block??? I think we must let go of mitsubishi already and start anew (my 91 dodge dynasty with the 3.3 agrees). Pentastar anyone?
